Forum: announcements Subject: Bookscanning Launch and Vision of an Open Library

Tonight we launched our bookscanning initiative and presented a vision of an Open Library.

At the event, Microsoft Network (MSN) joined the
Open Content Alliance and committed to kick off their support by funding the digitization of 150,000 books in 2006!
Enclosed is their press release.

Also, 14 libraries and library organizations joined in the last 3 weeks. Please see the Open Content Alliance site for more information.

Also, check out OpenLibrary.org for a cool bookviewer and the vision book-- it tells the story of what we envision.
